      I sure wish you wouldn't use an E-bike especially if you don't plan to use battery assistance very often. If you find this difficult consider biking less kms. per day. At any rate have a good good Camino and please stay off the walking only trails.

      Your response implies it is the walkers fault if a collision occurs. There should not be a "fright response" at all. I've been road biking, mountain biking and walking for over 60 years. Learn your place. If by bell, voice or slower movement...

      I certainly hope that someone can clarify the language as it certainly sounds like no e-bikes no matter what. I'm personally all for the change but then again, I'd prefer that all cyclists stay off Camino paths and use the road instead. You may...

      Although the ratio of cyclists to walkers was much higher when I walked my first Camino there was little conflict between the two at the time. Cyclists almost exclusively used road touring bikes which could not be used on the narrow rocky...

      I just finished Frances last week. As a percentage, bikes are still low. In 4 weeks there was not a day without a fast bike encounter. Yes, there are very some considerate riders. There are also NOT considerate. When 2 "pedal bikes" are going...

      In B.C., where I'm from, one normally says "On your left" or "Passing" but that's English. One of the difficulties bikers how have is that an inordinate number of people are wearing headphones and they won't hear you no matter what you do or say.

      I was looking at the new credencial I just got at the Pilgrim's Office for my next Camino. Reading the information inside I came across this: I had understood that it was possible to get a Compostela if one rides an ebike, but maybe not? As a...

      Excellent!! Let's hope that the riders of these bikes also stay off the waking/hiking only trails as well.
